“Today, OTT video platforms typically treat all mobile devices as if they are created equally. In future, video quality will be determined by the device’s ability to effectively play the highest quality, most efficient video stream.”


Improve Streaming Video Quality

Device detection provides a critical solution for streaming video platforms and their Quality of Service (QOS) analytics. WURFL device detection enriches QOS analytics with critical device capabilities that help pinpoint problems with streaming video.

Identify Connected TV and OTT Streaming Devices

Device detection helps Connected TV and OTT video advertising become more targeted and effective. Both Demand Side Platforms (DSP) and Supply Side Platforms (SSP) benefit from using WURFL device capabilities.

Growing Support of HEVC or H.265

In 2022 Q2, 91% of Android smartphones supported HEVC. This is a major increase from 2018 when only 57% of Android devices had hardware-supported decode for HEVC. The most common decode support was at level 5 (4,096×2,160 @ 30.0 fps).
